Here's my experience of the course

My first attempt in learning how to use the video editor ShotCut was through YouTube tutorials. But I was really struggling because basically those tutorials, as good as some of them were, only helped me learn bits and pieces of the software. A bit like looking for something with a flashlight. After a few weeks of going here and there, trying this and that, I was going nowhere. So I decided to spend a few dollars for a professional teaching program that would present all the pieces in a more coordinated and cumulative way. A flood light instead of a flashlight. Randomly, I picked James Woo's program. I lucked out. It does exactly that, plus more. As an 80-year-old amateur trying to learn new tricks, I needed a bit of hand-holding at first. To my surprise, James promptly responded to my queries in a very friendly manner. From my experience, not too many on-line teaching programs include a bit of personal mentoring ! Compared to individual YouTube tutorials, this course lays out in a menu-like format all you need to know about the software which makes it so easy to know where you are, where you've been, and where you're going.
Voiceover video needs updating, course not keeping up with updates
Robert Hayles , 2 weeks ago
DirectShow no longer available in latest Shotcut update, and none of the options in Edit>>Open Other include a way that I can find to use a headset mic. Until this video is updated we are reduced to recording on another device, like a Digital Voice Recorder, laying down another audio track, and matching the video to the audio. That is a pain in the butt. The course needs to keep up with updates.
Very good course, tutorial and help

I would definitely recommend this course for the beginner. You will not only learn from the basics to advanced on Shotcut but also will receive help from James. It was my pleasant surprise to receive reply of guidance from James via. email. I would give this course for 5 star.
I am disappointed in the course. Very short lessons and bad english

Pleasant and well paced - an excellent tutorial

I was not sure that I wanted to pay for a course on SHOTCUT. I had already used SHOTCUT to create a promotional video on my company's BI platform. I'd learnt how to transition with titles from a youtuber who has made a series of videos for SHOTCUT. As these were free, I thought I would jusst use them. However, I considered the price to be quite low and decided that I might learn a little more. The lecturer has an easy voice and the demonstrations are set at a very pleasant pace. At no point did I feel rushed or that the subject matter had been glossed over. Initially, I thought that some of the videos were too simple but soon came to appreciate them being there as things, such as settings and where to find them, would really serve as reminders after a long time of not using the software. Also, the complete process is covered from source files, management and editing; there is a great link to a marquee creation site for creating scrolling titles. Overall, I rate the course highly and consider it initially deceptively simple. I would recommend all beginners and intermediates to take this course. Surprisingly, there are offers after purchasing the course and one of those is for James Woo's course in OBS. As a result of seeing the preview, I downloaded this software, purchased the course and have now replaced my ,now, very poor CAMSTUDIO software with OBS screen capture. I can't believe how powerful this software is in comparison to my aged CAMSTUDIO. I was amazed first at the ease of configuration but then at how many sources I could record simultaneously - such a powerful piece of software.
